YOSA of Bamenda

Yong sports academy of Bamenda play’s their first home game of the season this Sunday in Bamenda, as Unisport makes their debut in the new football season, under new coach Agbor Hans.

                    HEAD TO HEAD.

When the two sides meets this Sunday, it will be their 19th confrontation, since YOSA got promotion into the top tier in 2009. Their first meeting in the league one dates back to November 29, 2009, where the two teams played a zero all tie, and YOSA won 1#0 in the return leg played  on March 20, 2010.

In general, Unisport has defeated YOSA nine times in the League, with YOSA recording six wins and three other encounters ending on parity.

No encounter between the two sides has produced more than three goals, and Unisport has recorded back to back wins over YOSA just once. (In 2016).

Unisport has managed just two wins in nine matches away in Bamenda. The YOSA stadium in mile six Nkwen has been a nightmare for Unisport. Their last visit there saw a late Penalty from Festus NKWENTI settling scores, though Unisport won 2#1 in the return leg, despite  Kongnyuy Jude pulling one back for YOSA.

Memories of Unisport’s 1#0 win at the Cenajes Stadium in Dschang in late 2018, that saw YOSA eliminated from the Cameroon cup, are still fresh in the minds of Ndoumbe Bosso and his boys.

                    RECENT FORM

YOSA won their opening league game 1#0 against Eding  of the Lekie thanks to a 14 minute header from Cyril Founou. YOSA suffered just two defeats at home last season (against Eding sports and UMS)

Unisport was exempted from match day one, and will be looking to start the season on a high note, as they are determined to do better than their 16 place finish last season, which saw them relegated, and were only save by a decision from the world’s football governing body, sending BAMBOUTOS to the second tier. Unisport however had a good run in the Cameroon cup last year, where they were eliminated at the semifinals by eventual champions, Eding.

            PLAYERS

YOSA’s shot stopper, Chadian international Serge Diguel, was outstanding in his debut for YOSA last weekend, and will now face his former employers just few weeks after he swap them for YOSA.

Unisport witness an exodus of some of the best members if their squad, after their disappointing last season. Their Captain for last season, Bertin Nguemaleu left and joined UMS of Loum, where he is already commanding his authority at center back.

                   THE COACHES.

Former indomitable lions, Agbor Hans will be in his first game in charge as head coach of Unisport, since he took over from Sinisa Jovanovich.

On his part, Emmanuel Ndoumbe Bosso is one of the longest serving coaches in the Cameroon professional football league, and made it clear that YOSA will be out to revenge the recent defeats they have suffered in the hands of Unisport.
